The coastline surrounding Parc-an-Grouse is very popular with divers due to the number of ships that have met their fate on the rocky outcrops that dominate the coastal approaches.
Many of these wrecks can be reached with a minimum amount of effort, with a number of beaches close by that permit divers to launch and retrieve their boats the closest to Parc-an-Grouse are Porthoustock and Porthkerris  just half a mile away. Dive trips can be arranged with either of the two local dive operators Dive Action or Porthkerris Divers. Si usted comprar viagra puede estar seguro de que no le hara dano.

One of the most popular wrecks to dive on is the Mohegan, she struck the Manacles in Cornwall on October 14th 1898.

One of the most dreaded of all reefs, the Manacles (from the Cornish 'mean eglos', rocks of the church, a reference to the landmark of St. Keverne's tower) stands east of the Lizard peninsula, in a perfect position to catch shipping on the way into Falmouth.

If you are looking to go diving on the Manacles in Cornwall we offer superb B&B accommodation, with plenty of places to dive in Cornwall.

The Mohegan was outward bound, and hers is one of the most mysterious of all Victorian sea-disasters. She was a luxury liner on only her second voyage, from Tilbury to New York. Somewhere off Plymouth a wrong course was given.

A number of people on shore realized the ship was sailing full speed (13 knots) for catastrophe; a coastguard even fired a warning rocket , but it came too late. The great ship struck just as the passengers were sitting down to dinner.

She sank in less than ten minutes, 106 people were drowned, including the captain and every single deck officer, so we shall never know how the extraordinary mistake in good visibility , was made. 

 The captain's body was washed up headless in Caernarvon Bay three months later. Most of the dead were buried in a mass grave at St. Keverne.

Cornwall, possibly the country's premier diving location, offers the combination of a temperate climate along with a coastline washed by the clear, clean waters of the Atlantic Gulf Stream. This ensures good underwater visibility all year around.

Basking Sharks are regular visitors to the Cornish coastline along with Porpoises and Dolphins, an abundance of shipwrecks and reefs ranging from 8m to 80m caters for divers of all levels as well as those considering learning the sport. The un-spoilt dive sites of Cornwall filled with many types of fish, crustaceans and reef life await the visiting diver.

                      Charters can be arranged with either of the two local dive operators Dive Action or Porthkerris Divers.
